from Rudeen Racing powered by mIn Motorsports, OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (April 28, 2005) -- Team Rudeen Northwest is ready for its first Sprint Car racing action of the 2005 season, as drivers Kevin Rudeen and Matt Steinhauer are set for Northern Sprint Tour competition at Willamette Speedway in Lebanon, OR, on Friday night and Grays Harbor Raceway Park in Elma, WA, on Saturday.

With Rudeen Racing powered by mIn Motorsports World of Outlaws Sprint Car pilot Shane Stewart touring the country in the new Elite Custom Coach and Transporter, Rudeen and Steinhauer now have the trusty red truck and trailer back in the northwest portion of the country and are ready for NST action aboard the Wesmar-powered No. 26 and No. 26r Maxims.

Rudeen, owner of Stewart's World of Outlaws ride, makes his return to the cockpit for the first time since the 2002 Dirt Cup, when Kevin was involved in a melee that sent him to the hospital with multiple fractures to his arm.

Graduating from the Sportsman ranks at Skagit Speedway in Alger, WA, Steinhauer made a pair of 360-ci Sprint Car starts in 2004, including a strong eighth place run at Grays Harbor Raceway Park in Elma last June.

Shane Anderson rejoins as Rudeen Racing as crew chief for the two-car effort after several years on the World of Outlaws trail with Donny Schatz, then working with wingless open-wheel ace Bud Kaeding in 2004.

In addition to Rudeen Development, mIn Motorsports Management, Wesmar and Maxim, sponsors for the Team Rudeen Northwest effort include HRP Wings, Schoenfeld Headers, XYZ Machining, Car & Fleet Auto and Brodix.
